amazarashi – Kyoukaisen (English Translation)[86: Eighty-Six Opening 2]

Year: 2021

Lyrics:

What a scene I saw in my eyes – The last twinkling of a star​ ​​
​​​Resignation, is that now a thing of the past? The night is dark, no one has​ ​​
​​ ​light

No one knows, no one can name, what our sparks have illuminated
The dried soil, the charred rubble, the days when you smiled

​I know that I’m destined to end up forgotten on the other side of the border​ ​​
​That voice that won’t allow me to give in, is it a former comrade in arms or my​ ​​
​​ ​own heart?​ ​​
​The meaning of existence is always something other than myself, like you,​ ​​
​​ ​only your voice​ ​​
​I felt that if I could reach you, I could call the faintly lit fire hope ​​

​I didn’t want to see it like this. The crying that blocked the voice that cried
“It’s scary out there”, a loud voice said, and the reverberations spread,​ ​​
​​ ​stabbing people

​It’s easy to turn a good man into a violent one, and that one voice is​ ​​
​​ ​unmistakably justice
It’s always been to protect the wretched beast that he turns into

On the other side of the border, beaten down, grieving, and yet still​ ​​
​Is that voice that condemns me for pretending to be someone I’m not, an​ ​​
​​ ​afterimage of my hometown or my own heart?​ ​​
​The meaning of existence is always something other than myself, like you,​ ​​
​​ ​only your voice​ ​​
​I felt that if I could reach you, I could call the faintly lit fire hope

​Every heartless decision I made, every reckless choice I made, every defeat I​ ​​
​​ ​succumbed to, every compromise I made
​Because I hate yesterday, the day I was forced to do this​ ​​
​So next time, choose me, choose me today​ ​​

​On the other side of the border, I see people struggling, people grieving ​​
​If we choose to remain silent, are we accomplices, or can we be people?​ ​​
​The value of our existence is always within ourselves, the color of each​ ​​
​​ ​individual​ ​​
If I hold you in my heart, the faint fire that lights up is somehow similar to the​ ​​
​​ ​last starry sky
